20 acres in the heart of the city gardens

the Gardens

Acres of gardens and parkland surround Prestonfield, sheltering guests from the bustle of the city beyond. This unique enclave is a wonderful place to wind down, to enjoy afternoon tea in the summer or an evening drink on the terrace.

Park your car (for free!), walk your dog, play croquet, enjoy a run, hide in the gothic tea house or share a drink with friends. You can even land a helicopter or enjoy the peacocks and Highland cattle - all in the heart of Edinburgh.You'll find ancient statues, elegant topiary, a croquet lawn, putting green, an 18-hole golf course and Royal Holyrood Park adjacent.

And when the sun shines you'll also find al-fresco dining, afternoon tea on the lawn and a terrace perfect for drinks too!

 

Garden Room Terrace

Occupying a secluded corner, this charming hidden terrace leads off of the Garden Room private dining room and overlooks the lawns.

Shaded by pots of olive trees and filled with planters of herbs, this sheltered terrace can be entirely covered over making it a unique al fresco location for drinks before private dining in the Garden Room.

Tapestry Room Terrace

Prestonfield's grand elevated terrace overlooks the entrance and gardens and leads from the historic Tapestry Room. Surrounded by historic stone balustrades and pots of topiary it is a sought-after spot for drinks before lunch or dinner. In summer it is just perfect for afternoon tea or just somewhere to escape to with the papers and a glass of wine...
